The theatre duo Myles O’Gorman and Gaia Fay Lambert are putting on another play together. This time they are doing His Dark Materials by Nicholas Wright and Philip Pullman for the ADC on Tour. I met up with them and their cast in Cambridge for a photoshoot.
When the children of Oxford go missing, it is down to Lyra and her daemon to save them. But all that Lyra knows is turned upside down when she crosses into another world and meets Will. As the threads of the universe unravel, these fateful companions enter an unimaginable quest that could change the course of everything…
“War is the sea I swim in and the air I breathe.”
A few more extra photos for fun.
They were having a good go at each other for the above photo. Below is a little behind the scenes video.
You can see His Dark Materials at Fitzwilliam Museum July 27 to August 4 2018. A big thank you to the wonderful cast for a fun photoshoot!
